HacX brightmaps

Hello all! This past week I've been working on a brightmaps pack for HacX, as I don't think any has ever been created or at least finished in the past. I did most of the graphics for all enemies, weapons, items, props, textures and flats. I used version 1.2 as a base but hopefully this should work with any version with just minor modifications required.

I'd like to pull request this into GZDoom's brightmaps.pk3, when I can find some time.

Yeah, should definitely be done - but we first need a means to safely define brightmaps for wall textures.

I'll move this to the Feature Suggestions forum so it won't be forgotten.

Out of curiosity, what is wrong with the current implementation? Or is there some incompatibility with TEXTURE1/PNAMES?

The current logic cannot detect if a mod replaces TEXTURE1 but then keeps the content unchanged. So the only realistic chance to attach something to the stock textures would be adding a checksum, like Build's DEF allows for tile replacements.
